It's basically incompetent northbridge design.

No, that means the HW is a Piece Of Shit !

Cache coherency is a basic feature of anything claiming to be used as a desktop machine.

What a PPC linux kernel hacker thinks about the Articia : Comment 18 of 68ANN.lu

Calling back and exchanging/hw fixing all the existing AmigaONE boards would be a devastating blow to Eyetech. IMO that's why the look for a software solution was so desperate.

Now it seems, according to OS4 developers, that there is such a way. I can see no problem, if all available operating systems will have an Articia specific driver. Performance penalties/Gains are yet to be seen, and will be debated endlessly in these forums, I' sure. But who will write drivers for other Operating Systems than OS4? Hyperion definitely won't, they stated it just too many times.
